CSIRO Vacation Scholarships

Run over the summer holidays, CSIRO's vacation scholarships scheme offers undergraduate students the opportunity of collaborating with CSIRO scientists. Each year around 200 university students spend their summer holidays working with CSIRO. Vacation scholars can go on to do further work with CSIRO. Some have been offered the opportunity of doing their honours or PhD projects jointly with us, others have been offered paid employment. Indeed, several Chiefs of CSIRO Divisions can trace their history with the Organisation back to a summer vacation scholarship.

It varies from year to year, but around half our Divisions offer vacation scholarships.

Participating Divisions include:

  • Astronomy and Space Science
  • Energy Technology
  • Entomology
  • Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Centre
  • Livestock Industries
  • Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE)
  • Mathematics Informatics and Statistics (CMIS)
  • Plant Industry.
